4 goalies who played last year in the NHL were drafted in the same round in the same NHL draft. Of course, that was the 9th round of the 1994 draft: Tim Thomas, Evgeni Nabokov, Johan Hedberg, and Tim Thomas.
When I was a kid I lost the championship series in little league. That night my mom brought me to Carvel. What's the difference?
Seriously, what a non-story this whole thing. TMZ is nothing but a bunch of a parasites trying to make things out of nothing and are always looking to paint people with a bad image whether they deserve it or not.
Its a completely legitimate and practical question. No one is giving up on this team...he asked whether you'd rather lose in 4 or 5.
It's a bullsh!t question. If there was a choice for I could give a fvcks less that's what I would go with. I want to win. I don't give a sh!t if people are woe is me we are down 3-0. Threads like this are garbage.
Matteau posts here all the time during Devils Rags, and is fair and classy. Do I agree with him/her on this issue? No, but there are a lot of Devils fans on this board who are worse posters. You wanna argue, be my guest, but stop with the personal b!tching.
Sorry to get all hall monitory.
This is what you call fair and classy?
Where is that thread where you babies were whining about the Flyers fans and how about the awful security team in Newark? When there is a story about a devils fan getting assaulted on Wednesday night, I'm sure none of you will be complaining.
you want a biscuit? Cursed at, you should be able to deal with, threatened? Not necessary, but most of those are futile attempts to get under your skin. Maybe in this case it wasn't so futile. Being spit at is way over the line, I'll give you that one.
This troll should have been banned a long time ago. Banning other teams fans is the only thing HF boards does right. NJDevs has just always been open to other teams fans who don't troll too hard but I'd rather see all Ranger fans banned cause if I never had to deal or talk to another Rangers fan for the rest of my life it would be fine by me.
These teams hate each other, the coaches hate each other and the players want to beat the sh!t out of each other. That's not staged, that's the passion that hockey and this rivalry brings out in players, coaches and fans. Don't like it? Turn it off!
How many individual players are a draw by themselves though? Other then Crosby there isn't a single one. And no Ovie doesn't count because that arena down in DC was so empty you could hear a pin drop in it before the team actually started winning. Those fans didn't hop onto the Ovie bandwagon until the team started playing well.
Caps attendance starting the first year Ovie was with them...
05-06 - home average was 28th in the league at 13,905
06-07 - home average was 27th in the league at 13,929
then the first year they make the playoffs
07-08 - home average was 24th in the league at 15,472
and then all their annoying fans jumped on board finally
08-09 - home average was 13th in the league at 18,097
I was part of it last year, and I don't remember any begging of the front office for official recognition. I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure it was the Devils that came to us and offered the official recognition and unexpectedly gave us free tickets for one or two games. No offense, but from a reader's perspective that post just reeks of bitterness.
And I agree with you 100% that everyone there needs to make themselves a part of the atmosphere, not just one official loud section, not two unofficial loud sections, every section. It is disheartening to see so many people just sitting there with their hands on their lap all game long. Why even bother going to the game then? How could it be worth your money to just sit there like that? I don't get it, maybe someday we will have a nice home rink atmosphere.
Cause you are right, we never begged for anything. I sent them an email asking them to give us the back of a section to let us stand/chant. They said yes and that was that. All the stuff the front office did was because they wanted to do it.
The bottom line is that whoever is in the section now has to pick up the ball and run with it to make it work. Being quiet no matter how many goals we are down doesn't accomplish that. It's only game 1 but I'm hoping to see it get better.
